Rules of Style: How to Wear Bold Patterns and Colors
Wondering how to wear this summer's brightest looks? Top menswear designers like Richard Chai, Tommy Hilfiger, Kenneth Cole, and Patrick Robinson lay down the rules of incorporating pattern and color into your wardrobe.
"Add a boldly colored and/or patterned tie or cravat to a suit or trench-look as an easy, automatic conversation starter. Not only will you look sharp, people will feel more inclined to approach you to compliment you on your dapper look."
"Unique socks go a long way to make things fun. If you're required to wear a grey or navy suit everyday there are few ways of showing some personality. A patterned or solid sock that matches what you're feeling is a nice way to shake things up."
